True, the photo can be altered.   I did state that it "looks like".

However ...

Original: Hook gap is larger.  Wire diameter appears larger/  Fly proportions to materials appears to be in favor of a 2 ... or even a 1/0 hook.

I ran across this fly in one of my books, Flies for Trout, by Allen and Stewart. Their recipe called for "artifical hair", and a split bead eye. Not sure how they split the bead.

Not really happy with this first effort:

Dumbells back too far from eyes

Gill band too thick

Hook size/proportions wrong, but its all I had 

Overall too busy of a tie

 

With macular degeneration I have trouble with tying these days - let alone take a picture

 

Open for critism

 

Thanks

Doug

Here's the pic from Flies For Trout. It's called a beady eyed black nose dace.
